My Monday Morning Plan + Today’s Cleaning Project

My Monday Morning Project

It’s Monday and guess what that means? That means it’s time for our weekly deep-cleaning project! Every Monday morning this year, I’ll be assigning us all a deep-cleaning project to tackle (well, that is, if want to join us!)

Today’s project is to deep clean one closet. I’m going to go through Kaitlynn’s closet with her because it’s in need of some cleaning/de-cluttering!

Here’s my plan for this morning:

  • Bible reading/journaling
  • Blogging/Business work
  • School with Silas
  • Breakfast/Morning Time
  • Chores/quick house clean up, start a load of laundry
  • Clean out Kaitlynn’s closet
  • Get girls started on their independent work
  • Clean up my room/make bed/put away laundry
  • Ready to go — lunch made — head to work at our office space

This evening, I’ll share a post about how my morning well and give you an update (with pictures) on how my closet-cleaning project went.

    I decided it would be a good idea to get my least-favorite cleaning task out of the way early in the week. So, after I get off work, I am going home and vacuuming our stairs. They still have winter salt on them. 🙁

    I have to laugh because I can only tackle one closet at a time, and I do tend to procrastinate this. Usually, I need a day or two after cleaning one to muster up enough motivation to do another one. On the positive side, I always discover lost treasures of all kinds and end up being the hero of the day! Like you, writing my plan to tackle a dreaded chore down holds me accountable so that I actually do it!

  • I actually should work on all the closets…I suppose that I should write it down in order to remind me…

  • I’m glad you posted this as I just spent several hours this weekend sorting through my closet, and was able to send off three bags to twice up, schoola, and thredup! The added room is awesome! I also wiped down my closet shelves with ceder oil to prevent earwigs and such, as I live in the deep south! Thanks for the post!

    Ooooo. Now that’s a challenge!!

    I’m afraid to peek into my youngest’s closet. Here I go.

    Just spent the morning working on my daughter’s closet – pulling out winter clothes that no longer fit her and bringing down her summer tops as it’s going to be in the 80’s later this week.

  • Shelly says:

    Today is laundry day at our house. I did some cleaning on Saturday morning so the house is still looking good. Maybe I won’t have to vacuum again until late in the week which would be so nice.

    I already went through the kid’s room and spring cleaned for this year, I’m so glad to have about half the house done. I just have the basement, which should be easy and the kitchen, which I’m dreading but it really needs to be done. I’m hoping to get to half of the cupboards this week.

  • I think I have a few closets that need to be cleaned, but I think I should start on my own. I need to add this task to my weekly chore schedule.
